VMFH closing outpatient therapy services at St. Michael Medical Center

Virginia Mason Franciscan Health confirmed on Monday plans to close outpatient therapy services at four sites around Puget Sound, including at St. Michael Medical Center in Silverdale, by the end of the year.

The clinics will close on Dec. 31, and services will be consolidated at other VMFH locations “allowing us to fully utilize the resources we have to provide exceptional care to our patients,” the health care group said as part of a statement sent to the Kitsap Sun.

Adult therapy services through the St. Michael Medical Center clinic will close, though VMFH noted that it would maintain access to outpatient video swallow studies and to outpatient pediatric therapy services there. The Silverdale clinic has offered physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and massage therapy care. Physical therapy clinics on Kimball Road in Gig Harbor and in Bonney Lake will also close, as will a clinic at St. Clare Hospital in Lakewood.
